China has a few active volcanoes, which are all related to intra-plate mantle plumes and located far from tectonic plate boundaries.
There are many historical earthquake reports from China, the earliest dating back to 23 BC, but only very few about volcanic eruptions.
One of the world's largest eruptions during the past 10,000 years took place at Baitoushan volcano on the China/Korea border in the 11th century AD. The most recent eruption in China was from the Kunlun volcano in 1951.
